From Acronis support: In answer to TI 10 b 4942's slow backup and recovery (using TI's bootabele CD), I am told "You can increase priority from Tools -> Options -> Default backup options -> Backup priority." I do not see that option at all. I have tried countless times thinking it's my fault but, it just isn't there. Nor do I get an option to set options manually. When I click on Backup or Restore I get the wizard with no options. I thought I'd post here rather than email reply to Acronis thinking this may be quicker.
